Source: LIVE UPDATES: Batkid's Make-a-Wish Transforms San Francisco Into Gotham
There are days when I don’t want to get out of bed for fear of bumping into and having to interact with, what I laughingly call, my fellow humans. My Lord, we are a bunch of shellfish douchebags, aren’t we.
But then, something happens that just makes my day:
All day, liveblog.abcnews.go.com has been covering BatKid, and his quest to save San Fransico from the clutches of the Penguin:
A little boy will get the surprise of a lifetime today when San Francisco transforms into Gotham City to fulfill the 5-year-old leukemia patient's wish to be Batman for a day.
The Make-a-Wish Foundation has created an entire day catered to Miles' dream.
Miles' day will include seeing a breaking news story on a TV. The police chief will be asking whether anyone knows where BatKid is because he needs his help to solve a crime and "bringing the bad guys to justice," Make-a-Wish said in a statement.
He'll spend the afternoon rescuing a damsel in distress tied up across the Hyde Street cable car line and capturing the Puzzler in the act of robbing a downtown vault. As BatKid eats his lunch at Burger Bar, he'll get a special message from the chief, telling him to go to the window where he'll look out over Union Square and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down and asking for his help.
A villain will be kidnapping a famous San Francisco mascot and BatKid will rush to the rescue. His last stop will be City Hall, where the mayor and police chief will thank him and present him with a key to the city and a crowd will be cheering him on.
Even the San Fransicio Giants took part in BatKid Day:
I’m sorry, I was busy cutting onions *sniff*
You can follow the adventures of BatKid live here. Now excuse me, I have something in my eye.

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
